WRUP: You meant completely free edition
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 August 2015, 10:00 am
Apparently I got a new game for free on Steam. I wasn’t really planning on it; I just saw a little advertisement saying that Race the Sun was free for one day only, so I decided to check it out, figuring it was one of the many games out there that has a free play weekend or day or whatever. It [...]

This is what happens when Facebook hacks Nintendo
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 August 2015, 10:00 am

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I entered the doors of the building, an approximately 7-foot Piranha Plant greeted me. Inside, I saw large question block cushions scattered throughout and 25 Wii U stations. Off in the corner was a Mario mascot, posing for photos in front of a big green pipe. If you thought I was in Nintendo Land, you'd be wrong. I was in Facebook's Menlo Park, California, offices. It was the second day of a two-day hackathon collaboration with Nintendo, where employees had the opportunity to create levels with the upcoming game Super Mario Maker. And the ultimate prize? The winning level design would be available to download when the game launches.Slideshow-308689

Blaugust Kickoff!
Posted by A Green Mushroom [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 August 2015, 10:00 am

Blaugust is here!

What is Blaugust you might ask?  Well dear reader, it's a time to try your hand at producing content every day.

I've mostly fallen into a 5 day per week posting schedule, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do this event with the blogging and gaming community that I love.

There are a ton of participating blogs, most are written but some are vlogs too.  We're all posting every day in August.

Thanks to the amazing Belghast for organizing this event.  Make sure to take a look at his site over at Tales of the Aggronaut.

He even gave us a writing prompt to kick off the event: What are you hoping to get out of Blaugust this year?

Personally, I'm taking Blaugust as a challenge.  I'm right near the end of my video gaming backlog and I know I'm going to need to branch out and talk about other things more often very soon.  This is going to push me there faster.  I always end up touching on movies, books, shows, tabletop games, and life occasionally with this blog but you can expect to see even more of those after I truly hit the end of my backlog.

Thanks Blaugust for propelling me forward into some new content areas!

DDO
The Drow rogue had led Wuldin and I into Osgood’s warehouse. It was dim inside with a few flickering torches lighting a spacious entry hall. While Mirrix motioned for us to wait near the entry way, she had soundlessly padded up behind the one sentry inside. The man died without ever seeing who held the [...]

The Daily Grind: Are MMO morality systems impossible to get right?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 August 2015, 8:00 am
I know it’s an old hat at this point, but I’m still quite appreciative that Star Wars: The Old Republic made an effort to give my character choices in dialogue and story actions. I feel more attached to my characters as a result and enjoy having a say in transpiring events. However, I also recognize that linking story choices with [...]

PlayStation Plus members will soon vote on what games go free
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 August 2015, 7:08 am

Sony Increases PS Plus Prices In Certain Countries

Sure, PlayStation Plus subscribers are used to getting "free" games every month, but they haven't had any say about what the gratis titles would be. Until now. With Vote to Play, you'll have a chance to make your voice heard. PlayStation VP of platforms marketing John Koller writes on the PlayStation Blog that the game with the most votes will automatically be added to the upcoming month's offerings, and that in the first round of voting the runner-up will be available at a discount. Pretty cool, huh? Exactly how the voting process will work (if there will be videos or whatnot to help make informed choices) isn't clear just yet, but Koller writes that more info is coming soon enough. The real question though is if you would've voted for Rocket League, the dark horse from last month's promo that's absolutely dominating the gaming conversation right now.

Incoming Reworks: Garen, Mordekaiser, Darius, Skarner
Posted by News [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 8:59 pm

 

Riot just announced a gameplay update schedule for Garen, Darius, Skarner and Mordekaiser. These are all champions I play and love (not so much Skarner anymore) and I've always known they had some glaring problems as to why they were trouble for Riot to balance. I have constantly had talks where I discuss with people the reality that just because a champion is strong doesn't mean their kit doesn't have problems. There is no way you could buff these champions in any meaningful way without making them horrible to play against. Some champions simply have kits with power allocated in some of the worst forms but that power is the only thing propping them up and making them even remotely playable.




I started a new character in @ArcheAge so it’s like I am going back in time to make up for the first me who was like WHOA WHAT’S THAT THERE


Betawatch: July 31st, 2015
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 8:00 pm
I’m not going to pretend to fully understand why people are super excited about Tree of Savior, but I’m still very happy that the people who are super excited about it are seeing forward motion with its first English beta test on August 4th. Seriously, that’s great news; Phantasy Star Online 2 fans have been waiting for that much news [...]

The Stream Team: Supporting pyromania in World of Warships
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 6:55 pm
Sailing. Setting things on fire. Sinking ships. What’s not to like about World of Warships? MassivelyOP’s MJ enjoys causing explosions — especially when it’s on an enemy battleship. It’s just a satisfying way to start the weekend. Her goal is to try out all the ships and see which blows things up the best, but she’s got quite a ways [...]

What July?
Posted by Welshtroll [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 6:25 pm
Well I’ve finally reached the far side of the chaotic patterns at work thankfully. So I’m trying to get my brain into blogging once more. It’s weird when I think that this time last year I was gearing up for Blaugust. I’ve had such a busy 3 months my blogging hasn’t really started in earnest […]

Although H1Z1 is deep in clean up mode, that doesn’t mean forward progress isn’t still being made. Producer Steve George and Senior Game Designer Adam Clegg spoke with us a bit about the upcoming features players will be able to see in the next few months, including a female zombie model, skin tinting, guild functionality, better base-building features, different types [...]

Camelot Unchained wants stealth but not the sucky kind
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 5:30 pm
Today’s Camelot Unchained update is a long one, and that’s because Mark Jacobs has a lot to cover. He talks about everything from backer benefits to the game’s terrain code and, oh yeah, there’s a little bit about the new stealth stretch goal. Jacobs goes to great lengths to describe how Camelot Unchained’s version of stealth won’t be easy mode, [...]

Meet the Oceanides, Skyforge’s main aquatic threat
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 6:00 pm
When I was a kid I used to go out with my grandfather on his fishing expeditions out in the Gulf of Mexico. What I saw him pull up in his nets convinced me then and there that I was best staying on dry land where I had the tactical advantage versus such horrible creatures. Son, the ocean is scary. [...]

Leaderboard: What’s your favorite EverQuest II class?
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 3:30 pm
I’m back in EverQuest II and having a pretty good time with it. As per usual, though, I can’t decide on a primary class and have spent the better part of a week dabbling with a Shadowknight, an Assassin, a Bruiser, and a Ranger. As if choosing between those four isn’t difficult enough, guess what, there are 22 additional classes, [...]

The Stream Team: Checking out claims and giving away Landmark goodies
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 3:55 pm
Sometimes when you tour claims in Landmark, you have a theme you want to follow, such as trains, dragons, the wild west, or space ships. Other times, it’s worth it just to wander and soak in the variety in builder’s creativity. MassivelyOP’s MJ is doing the latter today and giving away goody codes while she’s doing it. Tune in live [...]

Everything you need to know about Neverwinter’s guild strongholds

It’s a good time to be a guild in Neverwinter. That’s because on August 11th, every guild — no matter how large or small — will get their own massive zone to adventure and build a base of operations in when the game’s seventh free expansion, aptly named Strongholds, releases. Just how massive is massive? When Executive Producer Rob Overmeyer [...]

Guild Wars 2 is up, WildStar is down in NCsoft’s 2015 Q2 financial report
Posted by Massively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 31 July 2015, 1:00 pm
NCsoft has published its second quarter 2015 financial report, and it’s basically a repeat of quarter one. The company attributes its quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year boosts primarily to Blade & Soul’s “strong performance” in East Asia and momentum in Taiwan as well as the Lineage series’ continued dominance. Western sales for the company rose slightly over last quarter but are down year-over-year, [...]

Bashiok bids Blizzard adieu

Blizzard’s long-time community manager, Bashiok (known in the earlier days as Drysc), is leaving the studio after more than a decade or wrangling the World of Warcraft forums. Bashiok, who has been a constant figure in the WoW community since October 2003, has announced that he’s leaving to pursue a new opportunity. In a short-but-sweet post on the official forums, [...]
